Calling all kids! 

The Downtown Development District and Entergy present the annual holiday fun run for kids on Canal Street! Rudolph, Santa and friends will jingle their bells to signal the start of the race. Participants will receive a race t-shirt and a bag of holiday goodies. After the race, “Romp” around Canal Place Plaza and enjoy healthy activities, games, music, crafts and more! Looking for even more fun? Participate in the Canal Street Holiday Scavenger Hunt to collect treats and register for a chance to win exciting holiday prizes!

Saturday, December 8 • Registration 8:00am • Race Start 9:00am 
Begins & Ends at Canal Place

The “sleigh-measured” Reindeer Run is a 1-mile holiday fun run for kids and families on Canal Street, beginning and ending at Canal Place Plaza with a turn-around at N. Rampart Street. Runners and walkers are required to stay on the street and may not use the sidewalks or neutral ground.

EGG NOG JOG (Happens before the Run)
For reindeer runners who aren’t as fit as Rudolph, walk the 1/2 mile Egg Nog Jog and take in the festive sights along the way! Remember, prizes will be given for the best holiday costumes and stroller decorations! Children 8 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

After the run, stick around for holiday festivities including music, healthy snacks and drinks, kid-friendly holiday activities (like Yoga with Santa!), “Reindeer Games” and prizes for kids of all ages! Santa Claus, reindeer and more merry friends will make surprise visits as well!

The presentation of race awards will take place during the Canal Place Reindeer Romp on Canal Place Plaza. All participants will receive a prize. No official results will be kept, but reindeer runners are encouraged to check their time on the race clock at the finish line.

Santa and his helpers will be the jolly judges in the Reindeer Run & Romp Costume Contest! Categories will include Most Creative, Most Festive, Best Group Costume, and Best Decorated Stroller.
